Marks & Spencer is challenging people to invent something as part of a child’s school uniform – and be in with the chance of winning a family trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and a meeting with an astronaut. There are also 20 runners-up prizes of M&S vouchers worth £150 in the Back to School promotion, which is running from now until August 24th 2015. To enter, consumers have to go to backtoschool.marksandspencer.com and fill in a form providing the name and a description of their school uniform invention. The site has a number of examples on it, including self-cleaning uniforms, a standard UK wide uniform, shoes that shine themselves and a backpack with robot arms. It also highlights ‘inventions’ created by M&S, including Adjust-a-hem trousers and Stainaway shirts. Under 18s can enter, but have to have do so in partnership with an adult. Entries will be judged on creativity, and the overall winner will receive a four day trip for a family of four (two adults and two children under the age of 18) to Orlando, entrance to the Kennedy Space Center and a meeting with an astronaut, plus £500 spending money.
